We need to learn to depend on God, on His amazing grace. It is this grace that enables us to go through the most difficult situations in life without losing sleep, faith and hope.
So I would like to say a prayer on this topic. Say this powerful prayer with me!
Lord, teach me to depend on You, only You. In so many situations I place my dependence on people, resources, my work or my own understanding of life. May I remember Your sovereignty every day. That You are the One who has all knowledge, understanding and power over any circumstance.Prayer of dependence on the Lord
In this prayer, I want to exalt You and recognize that You Lord is greater than everything. Bigger than any health crisis, bigger than any financial crisis, bigger than the economy, bigger than any illness. There is no one like You. There is no one greater than You.
May I always remember all the great things that the Lord has done, the greatest miracle that was the life we received through Jesus and all the miracles that the Lord has already done in my life and in my family.
So many times I depend on things that are fleeting, instead of clinging to You, who is Eternal and Perfect. So often I am afraid because in my human and limited way of seeing, many situations seem to have no way out. I get anxious, my emotions are shaken. I forget that I have the Lord, who is the owner of life. Teach me to see how You sees situations.
Teach me to look at You at all times. Be it difficult times, moments of choices and decisions or happy and peaceful moments. May I recognize Your powerful hand in everything and may I always seek answers and solutions in You, Lord. May You always guide and sustain me.
May my heart not depend on or live around the things of this world: goods, pride, status, positions, banal acknowledgments, appearances. But may my heart depend entirely on Jesus, the only one in whom I can truly rejoice. Jesus is all I need!
May Your glory, Your rest and Your joy invade my heart. And may I understand that it all comes from You, from Your wonderful grace. I sincerely ask you, Father, teach me to truly depend on You.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.”– Proverbs 3:5-6
